Event Description

Herbert George Ponting’s extraordinary images record Scott’s Terra Nova expedition of 1910– 13 and Frank Hurley’s dramatic icescapes were taken during Ernest Shackleton’s polar expedition on Endurance in 1914-16.

Presented to King George V and today part of the Royal Photograph Collection, these images are among the finest examples of the artists’ work in existence. Canterbury Museum is the exclusive international venue.

Antarctic artefacts from Canterbury Museum’s collection complement the photographs and the work of the Antarctic Heritage Trust is also profiled in the exhibition.
